I love these photographs of women auditioning to become “Gleason Girls” on the The Jackie Gleason Show in 1953 by Lisa Larsen. Amazing model, Vikki “The Back” Dougan is part of the group (last image on right), but I think this young lady above has amazing style that shines through–past the tin foil backdrop sparkle. I love the funny low rent glamour sets you find in old photos sometimes. Tin foil and cellophane magic! Have a lovely week, everyone. xx
